Beach Cousins | Hampton Roads Family Photographer

Once upon a time, there were four families.  Every summer those four families took a vacation to the beach.  The children were best of friends.  So much so, that they started calling themselves cousins.  Beach cousins.  

Last week the Beach Cousins got together for the first time in a long time and asked me to capture their reunion.  It is always my pleasure to photograph such a funny and excited group.  They have all grown into wonderful young men and women.  

Horray for Beach Cousins!!!

I ♥ Faces - On Your Feet!

This week, the I ♥ Faces photo challenge is "On your feet," but since I prefer to be off my feet, I chose this photo.  It is from a beach favorite kind!

This photo was entered into the I Heart Faces photo challenge –

Molly Anna | Alexandria Newborn Photographer

This sweet baby girl was a joy to photograph.  Just 10 days old, she nestled down in her blankie and snoozed while I clicked away!  Her mommy and daddy are so proud and so are their three hairless cats!  Welcome to the world, Molly!

I had never seen hairless cats up close before...
She had obviously never seen a photographer before!

The Battersea | Petersburg Wedding Photographer

An 18th century plantation house in the midst of a renovation, my two favorite newlyweds, and a beautiful summer day all made for my favorite shoot ever!  I had the pleasure of photographing Holly and Eddie for their engagement shoot a year ago and they were married in June.  I was approached by the president of the restoration society for the Battersea in historic Petersburg to photograph a bride and groom for their merchandising and advertising campaign.  Holly and Eddie were more than happy to put their wedding finery back on and pose for me.  We had a fabulous time going through the old rooms and talking about the history of this beautiful home.  Thank you, Holly and Eddie for being such amazing models!  You make my work so easy!

 We scared a young man working on the property with this next photo...he looked up at the window at the exact time she was posing and you could tell that he truly believed that he had seen a ghost!  We went downstairs to assure him that she was real and got a big laugh about his "close encounter."

 There was no shortage of interesting places to shoot with great textures and interesting stories.  Some we could figure out, like the one above (outhouse!).  

The one below is beside an old tractor barn.  
 Holly, you are gorgeous!

Such a beautiful place...such a fun couple...

Morello Hoffman Kids | Outer Banks Family Photographer

Love, love, love these two families!!!  All the kids are so fun to photograph and are all naturals in front of the camera.  Add in the beauty that is the Outer Banks, NC and you have all the makings for a great photo shoot!  Of course, we had to compete for beach space with the "White/Khaki Family" and the "Blue/White Family!"   Must have been a popular spot to take pictures!

Baby Levi | Hampton Roads Newborn Photographer

This sweet baby is the third boy for a great family.  He is surrounded by more love, more kisses, and more matchbox cars than any one baby can claim!  He settled down after a brutal bout of hiccups and snoozed in a vintage iron egg basket.  So sweet!  Baby Levi, you will have a great life!

This mama is the personification of the phrase "beautiful, inside and out."  She has a giving heart, a beautiful soul, and two of the most adorable little boys.  And she is about to have boy #3.  SJ, I love you!  You are gorgeous!  Can't wait to meet baby Levi!
